moth - Epinotia fumoviridana

moth - Epinotia fumoviridana
Angelo Coast Range Reserve, Mendocino County, California, USA
September 22, 2006
Came to UV light.

Moved to Epinotia fumoviridana
Moved from Epinotia.

Tentative ID. I had the same impression before seeing Paul's comment. It matches the original description and MPG images of spread specimens.

Moved from Proteoteras.

The wing shape and long palps strongly suggest Epinotia for this one. What about Epinotia fumoviridana?

Jerry Powell agrees with Epinotia. Not sure about species at the moment so will leave it at genus...

Moved from Tortricid Moths.

A Tortricid Moth, Probably in Genus Proteoteras....
... closest I can get for now, if that is the correct genus.

I've moved this to Tortricidae for now. Thanks Bob.

Hi, this looks like 3233 -- B
Hi, this looks like 3233 -- Black-crescent Proteotoras Moth -- Proteotoras crescentana, or 3235 -- Gray-flanked Proteoteras Moth -- Proteoteras moffatiana from MPG, but I'm more inclined to say 3233.
